Recently selected as one of the “100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America”, the Edgewood Restaurant does not disappoint.
We were fortunate enough to be in Tahoe on Valentine’s Day, so my hubs surprised me with a fabulous dinner at the Edgewood Restaurant. Dinner at Edgewood was a highlight of our trip to Tahoe. Unfortunately Our Skiing Adventure at Lake Tahoe (Heavenly) – the Good & the Bad didn’t turn out so well.
Let’s focus on the positive aspects of the trip. We arrived at a time when Tahoe was receiving a tremendous amount of snow, more than normal…and Tahoe’s “normal” is a ton!
The Reason for our Visit to Edgewood
Attending the 2019 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles & Preparing for the Event was the main reason for our trip out West. A visit to Lake Tahoe to go skiing was an add on to our vacation. But the scenery in Tahoe was worth the trip, even though skiing was a bust.
Our drive to the restaurant from our Lodge was beautiful! Look at all this snow! I mean WOW!
Edgewood is a Lodge situated right next to Lake Tahoe. This picture was taken after dinner so it was already dark outside but all the snow really brightened up the setting.
During the summer months, the resort offers a wide range of amenities including Golf. The resort also has a Spa to relax those tired muscles after skiing.
We arrived at the restaurant around 5pm, the sun was beginning to set over the mountains and the view was spectacular.
Being at Edgewood during the Winter months and particularly during a huge storm, gave us a different perspective but seeing all this snow in a setting like this was breath taking.
Everything was covered in a thick blanket of snow.
Dining at the Edgewood Restaurant
Our table was situated next to the window, where we enjoyed views of the Lake during dinner.
The view from our table was incredible, the setting outstanding.
Being here on Valentine’s Day made the experience more special….lucky me ☺️
The five course dinner was a set menu and price.
The first course was a lobster salad with balsamic caviar.
The second course was asparagus and roasted mushroom with toasted nuts and a truffle vinaigrette.
For the main course, we each chose the char grilled prime filet mignon. It was amazing, along with several glasses of champagne 😉
Dessert was a real treat! I have been staying away from rich desserts in an effort to shed some pounds, but this course was light and didn’t give me that overly full feeling.
After dinner we relaxed by the fire outside the restaurant.
If you love beautiful scenery, water views, and fine dining, the Edgewood Restaurant is definitely a great place to visit if you are ever visiting South Lake Tahoe.
A sunset view over the Lake, how beautiful is that?
